    It's February, nine months before a presidential election, and only 22 percent of Americans say they are satisfied with the way things are going. Voters haven't been this unhappy with the country since George H.W. Bush's presidency, when only 21 percent of Americans reported being happy with the country's direction. And before that, the lowest approval rating was 19 percent during Jimmy Carter's first term.

    What do the two presidencies have in common? Neither of them won re-election. And, if the trends holds true, Obama looks to be in an equally precarious situation.

    The American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research released its 2012 campaign outlook, and it's clear Obama's sitting in the same position George H.W. Bush and Jimmy Carter were in during the February before their election losses—voters don't feel good about the country.

    Bill Clinton, Ronald Reagan, and George W. Bush—presidents who won re-election—all had at least 41 percent of voters optimistic with the state of the union.

    Obama is worse than Carter. Carter was just incompetent but had a love for the country. Obama is a saboteur and has intentionally inflicted more lasting damage than Al Qaeda ever could

    True! The GOP have never been worse or more corrupt. Reagan wouldn't even get the nomination today. By todays standard, Reagan would be a flaming socialist.

    We are frustrated with Obama on how he has handled working with the corrupt right wing GOP that serves only the rich and corporations. We are frustrated with him, but HATE you. Even though we are disappointed, it is YOU who has to go, not Obama.

    The left didn't move the country futher to the left. The right have however pulled us to the right the last 12 years, and how has that worked out for us?

    How did their war work out for us? How did Bush's trickle down work? How did de-regulations of the banks and mortgage and oil and healthcare and wallstreet work out? Free Unregulated Markets sending all our jobs overseas? Turning a blind eye on illegal employers who hire illegals. If you ask me, the GOP did all this on purpose to destroy the unions and with it the middle class.

    At some point the democrats are going to have to stop talking about who has to go and actually do something about it.

    Are they just all cowards? Step up to the plate, take a shot.

    Sane/rational/non brainwashed conservatives I talk to admit that Obama seems to be a decent person, even if they don't agree with his policies.

    We need to analyze why you think he's evil. Is it because he's black?

    How did you feel about Bill Clinton? Was he a socialist too or just Obama?

    Do you question if Obama was born in America? If so, you may be a racist because they are the only ones still thinking that at this point. Them and retards.
